Christianity? What are you talking about?
Not saying you're one of those people, but god, I can see this is going to be the go-to excuse for pretty much every PewdiePie fan and right-wing asshole.
I want him to condemn white supremacy and Islamophobia. I think there's a not insignificant amount of his viewers who believe shit like Muslims are invading countries.
It's the other way around
The perpetrators had shit written all over their guns like "Constantinople" and other Middle Age references. This is absolutely Extremist Christian terrorism.Christianity? What are you talking about?
And while this attack most certainly feels like validation for those Islamic extremists who believe that non-Muslims are actively warring against Islam, it's not like this alone will create a "new generation" of extremists. It will certainly motivate the extremists that there already are now, though.
About what I expected. I'm seeing online that the average street price for a gun in Australia is 15k US, and he had several of them, plus multiple magazines. Imagine having enough cash and assets to pick up and move almost anywhere in the world and live a reasonable middle-class lifestyle, but choosing instead to do this. That requires some deep indoctrination.
There's no reason to suggest "a generation of Islamic extremists" was born because of this.
Founded on genocide? That sounds a lot like every country in the Americas. Apartheid? You mean like South Africa? How about all the countries in Africa that are devastated by tribalism? Does the Darfur or Rwandan genocide ring a bell? Have you heard of the Rohingya or Uyghurs? It takes serious ignorance to think the US is the only country that has had massive racism.I dunno; founded on genocide, aparthied state up until the civil rights era, still weighed down by such racial disparity that reparations talk is actually a thing during this election cycle.
This doesn’t negate the dirt of other countries, or that specific minorites may suffer more in certain places because if a lack of robust rule of law, but its nuts reading about police brutality in the uk and having incidents of cops there using american racial slurs for instance. It could very well (and I agree with) the fact that America’s soft power pushes these images out even when it doesn’t want to because its so influencial
How about you don't fucking understand trolling? ""Trolling"" doesn't exist in these people, they sincerely believe what they write. How about you stop believing them when they tell you it's all a joke. Killing people is a joke to them.
Not as strict as aus. You get cleared by the cops, they visit your house, check you have secure storage for the weapon and ammunition, finish a verbal and written test. You can start buying .22 to do range shooting. Can start buying weapons with different class of weapons including m4 type semi autos from colt, browning, sig, h&k etc. prior NZ police required a licence per fire arm, now they just licence the individual, probably need to change back at least now.
Nope you’re wrong. I’ll quote the other resetera poster:
and. u know. recognize that he has given a platform to actual nazis in the past and otherwise contributed to this
Guarantee he is going to 100 percent deflect any blame from himself and paint himself as some sort of victim in all of this.
This is what I am terrified of, there’s gonna be a lot of consequences to this horrible day
Please tell that person to stop sharing it, you're just giving the shooter exactly what they want.
People just to get angry at Felix for everything. Not the biggest fan of him, but I don't think he's at fault for any of this.
Nah to the first part.
If you can't tell, pewdiepie is responsible for catering towards white supremacists and a portion of his fan base consists of these people. He is responsible for them conspiring together and giving them a common ground. He may not be directly responsible for orchestrating their movements but as a celebrity of theirs it's his responsibility to denounce them and put an end to their support of one another.
Until it happen again right? This is the worst thing to come of with this meme and there have been bad things already.
